Did you know only 45% of eligible Virginia households are enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP) program? SNAP provides food benefits to low-income families to supplement their grocery budget so they can afford nutritious food.

  • SNAP benefits are calculated based on household size, income, expenses, and other nonfinancial criteria.
  • You may be eligible even if you are working.
  • SNAP does not make you a public charge and will not be considered in a public charge determination.

Lynchburg City Schools is participating in the SNAP in Schools initiative to help reduce food insecurity in families with school-aged children.
